If you work in the longwall mining industry, you know how important it is to have reliable equipment. This type of underground mining presents several hazards and challenges to workers and equipment. For a successful mining operation, machines and systems such as roof support carriers, conveyors, plows, shearers and drive systems must all work together to ensure coal is extracted from a longwall mine safely and efficiently.
